We chose this hotel because we arrived very late to Ghent, it was just 2 minute walk from central train station. Location was great, it was quite, near to the park, SMAK etc. Walk from hotel to city center took about 25 minutes, but you can always take tram. Since we were walking through half city, we discovered Gent from... More

We arrived before check in time (around 2pm) and our room was already available. Very friendly staff, beautiful and clean rooms, comfortable bed and great location (close to railway station, but no train noises heard).

I would not stay here due to the excessive smell of chemicals in the room. Apparently this is their "cleaning products". In addition two broken lightbulbs and a shabby sagging chair to work on. This place is nothing like what you might expect. I will not be coming back.

Dear ProfessorCalculus The products we use to clean our rooms is a eco-friendly product http://be.ecover.com/nl/. The product you were so angry about were fragrance sticks from Rituals. These have been in our rooms over 2 years and in all honesty we've never had complaints before. It's unfortunate you will not be coming back just for this. It's very easy to... More

I had read about the amazing hospitality in many reviews of this hotel, and I have to tell you it is absolutely true. The owner greeted us as soon as we arrived at the hotel on a Sunday afternoon, and was super friendly and helpful. He gave us a brief overview of Ghent, and the things that we could do... More

We spent 1 night which was pleasant but mainly due to the lovely helpful staff. The breakfast was nice. The hotel was ideally located nearby train station. However, the hotel room looked a bit shabby, the faux leather chair had cover peeling off very badly and should be replaced and the bathroom had lots of blown cement on the ceiling... More

Immediately after walking in we were warmly greeted and sat down with coffee, tea, and maps while our host explained to us the city of Ghent. The two brothers that run the place are awesome hosts!

After abandoning our plans to stay in Brussels, we opted to stay in Ghent. What a GREAT decision!! First, you can get on a train at the Brussels airport and go directly to Ghent with no change of train. The Hotel Carlton was a perfect choice. It it about 300 meters from the train station. It is not the typical... More

We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is easy to find and situated extremely close to the train station. Upon our arrival we were a bit confused as renovations were being carried out in the lobby and at first glance we couldn't see someone who could assist us. Luckily this was sorted quickly... More
